Here's my views on this and there would need to be some sort of disclaimer.

First of all, for me I won't be sending anything out by post, so it would all be face to face.

Anyone lending out tools/equipment surely should be looking for a deposit, ID etc.

As far as failures/injuries go. IMO just like we do in the trade - the person renting out the equipment should be inspecting it and making sure it's all complete and free of defects and so on, secondly the person who has hired it should also be doing the same and refusing to use anything they are not happy with. Again, some sort of disclaimer that says you use any equipment at your own risk. I wouldn't give out any equipment I'm not happy to use myself.

I don't have a low loader to move the hunter machine about and my diag tools do not go out of my sight, I am sure there are enough members to cover the entire country really and if a tool is needed I am sure fellow owners of the tool would gladly give a hand if possible. :D :driving:

Mind tell the women in the post office what's in the package..

I sent a 1/2 ratchet first class today. Women in the post office said, because of the weight and size I need to know what's inside the bag. I couldn't help but think.. Mind your own business? Even if it was plastic explosive I'm not going to tell you am I?

Reminds me of two weeks ago,

I was packing up some angrybirds airfresheners and i used the cardboard box from a 19" suit case,

I had cut down the box to correct size and when completed there was a print saying 19"

So being funny i stuck a note saying "from lenny with love xxx"

When i got to the post office she looked at the box and asked if it contains batteries :lol:

I was going to say "why, are you going to try it out for yourself"

But i just laughed and said no, :)

Haha, I posted some wires and resistors the other day, guy felt it, asked what I was posting. Told him it was wires and resistors and see if he could guess why. He replied quietly... "as long as someone else is posting the half that makes the bigger mess that's fine with me".

I replied touche sir eventually told him it was a lot less exciting for making cruise control...

:lol: combined with a Garrett GTX4088R that could be pretty explosive cruise control jeeb :lol:

You should have told him:

"if you do your job, and deliver the parcel on time then neither of us have a problem"

My answers tend to vary depending on whether the counter staff have a sense of humour or not.

The descriptions vary from car parts to marital aids ;)

We used to buy in loads of Lithium batteries (like the cells in laptop batteries), only had one from hundreds which caught on fire, "went up like a roman candle" as the boss says, lol.

Funniest thing, they were branded TrustFire. :lol:

Pmsl! The type in a laptop will be Li-ion? Considerably safer than a lipo but no doubt still a great fire out them lol.
